Watch 2 New Clips From 'Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom'

Two more clips from The Weinstein Company release, MandelaLong Walk to Freedom, which stars Idris Elba as Nelson Mandela and Naomie Harris as Winnie Mandela, in a film directed by Justin Chadwick, which highlights Mandela's early life, education and 27 years in prison.

The first gives viewers a glimpse at Sophiatown - a rallying point for anti-apartheid agitation during the 1950s. 

And the second highlights Mandela's early days as an attorney, in the 1950s, when he and Oliver Tambo (fellow anti-apartheid activist and African National Congress central figure) opened their own law firm, operating in downtown Johannesburg.

South African stars Tony KgorogeRiaad Moosa, Zolani MkivaJamie Bartlett, Lindiwe MatshikizaDeon Lotz and Terry Pheto, round out the film's cast.

The Weinstein Company will open the film in the USA on November 29 - likely as one of its Oscar contenders.
